that's okay! my husband loves dessert so it doesn't bother him a bit that i make dessert all the time.
sometimes my dessert experiments run amuck because i'm trying to make them healthy, but not this one! they are "skinnier" because they have 1/2 the butter of regular cookies and they have oats and multigrain flake cereal instead of just flour. (they aren't healthy by any means, but they're an improvement on regular cookies!) and they also halted my biggest pet peeve about cookies... they aren't gross the 2nd day. i put them in a plastic bag overnight and they were so yummy and chewy today i couldn't stop eating them! enjoy!
skinnier choc-oat chip cookies
1/4 cup butter (1/2 a stick), almost melted
1/4 cup light or fat free sour cream
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs (or 3 egg whites if you want to get extra healthy!)
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup oats
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup multigrain flake cereal (i used the wal-mart generic brand. corn flakes would work.)
3/4 cup chocolate chips
1. cream butter, sour cream and sugar. add vanilla and eggs. beat until creamy.
2. add flour, oats, salt and baking soda. mix well.
3. stir in chocolate chips and multigrain flakes.
4. bake at 350 for 8-12 minutes (depends on your oven - watch them close and error on the side of undercooking them. do not overcook. they are done when the edges start to get brown.)
